Do or Die
Since I've known you
you've given me
a new perspective on life.
You've allowed me to be
Open and free
without any strife.
Happiness and contentment
fills me inside
like nothing I've felt before.
You smile and kisses
even the simplest touch
are things I adore.
When you say my name
my brain freezes up
I'm not used to it's sound.
Everything you say
rings of sincerity and true
because of this, to you I'm bound.
I know I did wrong
I know there's changes to be made
things have been lost.
I've said i was sorry,
but I need to show you
or this won't pass.
I'm eternally grateful
for this chance
I don't think I deserve.
I swear to do my best
it may mean nothing now
but you'll see it's honour I serve.
This isn't a promise
It's not a vow either
It's my honour and heart.
If I do this wrong
I'm destroying myself
and we'll be apart.
